THE GATSBY 1920s DRESS

Insight & Inspiration

A fabulous reproduction 1920s dress. Available in different sizes and colours.

Sequins and beads adorn a semi opaque dress. Our picture shows a slip worn underneath which are sold separately. The sequins and beads refract the light in an array of colours, just like petrol they can appear crimson or turquoise or silver.

The fringe work is amazing: Heavy, ornate multiple beads on every strand, be prepared to lose a few this is natural. a small kit of extra beads will be supplied but concern yourself more with enjoying your night than shedding some strands. You may notice that we offer a number of similar dresses and price is reflected in the quality of the workmanship.

This dress can be worn in an authentic 1920s fashion or a vintage inspired more modern fashion.

Detailed Description

These are jaw dropping dresses designed to impress. Forget cheap fancy dress items these are an entirely different league. When vintage original 1920s dresses are hard to come by and high street brands mass manufacture styles that everybody else will be wearing, you want something more unique and impressive.

We absolutely love the colour of the yellowy green lemon chartreuse but the black with silver and the black version will look stunning as it catches the light every time you move. If you shimmy shake and charleston you will certainly be the centre of attention as this fantastic beadwork refracts the light and looks amazing.

The sequins and beads across the torso are attached to a fine mesh dress. The mesh is semi-opaque and you will probably want a slip underneath. Slips can be purchased separately but you may already have your that you could use.

Many woman tell us how they 'can't wear 1920s style clothing' as the don't have that type of figure.Women today are generally used to wearing some degree of tailoring that defines their shape be it curvaceous or athletic. It can be quite a shock to put on an authentic style 1920s dress and have any waistline you have completely disappear! Apparently you are drowned in fabric or simply appear to be wearing a sack. Have no fear though we are here to help you solve your 1920s clothing dilemmas.

Choose your size according to whether you want the drop waist authenticly 1920s look which is boyish and rectangular or opt for a smaller size and the dress will define your figure in a flattering way, more like the modern styles you are used to.

Wearing this dress in your largest appropriate size the dress will achieve a more authentic 1920s look. The dress will simply fall from the shoulder in a rectangular fashion without defining bust, waist or hips. It's a great 1920s look but not everyone loves the authentic 1920s style.

Some girls would rather sacrifice complete authenticity to achieve a little more definition of their figure. This is what we have photographed in our product picture in a size 10-12 on this model, choosing a size that begins to show the shape of the bosom, suggests the existence of a waistline and the curve of the hip.Of course, you might go one size smaller again and then this dress will neatly fit and flatter your figure in a more modern way.Rather than geometric shapes and angular lines the designer has interpreted softer shapes and decoration that will betterflatter a curvaceous woman's shape. Wearing your smallest appropriate size the silver ornamentation will sit neatly accross the hips, the ornate neckline will flatter the chest and the result is beautiful 1920s inspired look.
